Cute as a Pumpkin

Howdy ya'll! I just wanted to remind you that the current "Too Cute" challenge at Card Cupids is running through October 31st. I hope you'll join the challenge and send in a card (it doesn't have to be the card you enter in the challenge). We're also have a bunch of Special Requests right now.

You may remember my DT card for this challenge, featuring a image from our sponsor Di's Digi Downloads. But I wanted to share another "Cute" card I made, with a Fresh Brewed Designs digi (our sponsor for Card Cupids' November 1st challenge, hint hint!):

The image is Jack's First Tooth (part of a three-digi set), and he's so cute that I traced him to make a shaped card. There is some paper piecing: the leaves are a Core'dinations cardstock; the front pumpkin is an orange Recollections paper embossed with a Cuttlebug texture folder; and the eyes & mouth are from a white cardstock that I colored with a florescent Copic (). I cut a leaf with a Sizzix die and heat-embossed the "Hello Friend" sentiment (Hero Arts) in shiny orange (Recollections). The actual digi has some swirly vines, but those got cut off so I replaced them with a vine ribbon. Easy and fun!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
  1. Forever Friends: Halloween / Autumn
  2. Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #141: Pumpkin Patch OR Anything Fall
  3. Papercraft Star Challenge #117: Halloween Pumpkin
  4. Scrapalicious: Halloween
  5. There She Goes Challenge #177: Fall / Halloween

This card would also be appropriate for the current Shaped Cards challenge at Pile It On (hurry, the deadline's today!). Hope you'll join us there as well as at Card Cupids!
